The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service recently released its annual U.S. Carrots Statistics report.


The report features statistics from 1950 to the present on U.S. and state-by-state acreage, yields, production, price, value, supply, per-capita consumption, exports, imports and other categories.


Pricing data from the report shows that while carrot prices received by growers increased exponentially from 1959 to 1989, the pace of increase has slacked off considerably in the past two decades.
